Artist Profile: Australasian Painters 2007-2017
Orange Regional Gallery
8 July – 10 September
The young maestro Torey Thornton, who is just 27 this year, has taken painted rocks that he scavenged from around the country or received as gifts and attached them to a gargantuan circular saw blade, nearly nine feet in diameter. What a painting! Baer, a full 60 years older than Thornton, has made a suite of paintings by assembling ancient archaeological iconography and her own personal references—humble, whispered poems that span millennia. And in a sumptuous 3-D video that has particularly stuck with me, Anicka Yi, who is best known for trailblazing sculptures that incorporate scent and organic materials, stars as a scientist deep in the Amazon, on the hunt for something called the Flavor Genome, which is perhaps a playful metaphor for some of those ever-elusive things in art and in life: solutions, novelty, meaning.
Update August 26th, 3:44pm: One person was confirmed dead in Rockport, Texas as a result of the hurricane.
